Egg Donation


Egg donation is an incredible opening for infertile couples, gay couples and others to build a family. IVF with egg donation in Cancun is growing infertility treatment for women whose eggs are not fit for producing a successful pregnancy.

Some women have an insufficient egg production while others produce eggs of poor quality.

IVF clinics in Cancun give Intended parents the ability to select an anonymous donor based on many factors including hair color, eye color, skin tone, ethnicity, education and medical history.

Egg donation Cancun is an assisted human reproductive technique in which the donor eggs are fertilized with the sperm for the intended parents. The eggs used may be from a donor undergoing ovary stimulation simultaneously with the egg recipient or frozen donated eggs.

Good Candidate for Egg Donation Cancun

IVF Cancun beholds an active egg donor program to provide several options in choosing the right egg donor for you. Egg donation is suitable for women who cannot produce viable eggs or who have chromosomal defects that restrict natural conception.

The primary issues include: premature ovarian failure or the loss of ovarian function from surgery or chemotherapy and women who are unresponsive to medication or have poor egg quality due to the delay in childbearing or diminished ovarian reserve.

Egg Donation is also an excellent option for same-sex couples who have the option of using a gestational carrier.

Egg Donation Procedure

Pairing of Menstrual Cycles —

Synchronizing cycles between you and your donor is a key step. While the donor is starting the egg production process, the egg recipient is given hormones that will prepare the uterus to receive the embryos and support a pregnancy.

Endometrial Growth —

Estrogens are introduced to enable endometrial growth at the highest level for egg retrieval. In an IVF cycle, the egg donor will be given fertility medications to stimulate the production of multiple eggs. Once the eggs and hormone levels have reached maximum stages, the donor will receive an HCG injection to bring the eggs to final maturity.

Egg Retrieval —

At 36 hours after the injection, the donor will undergo egg retrieval in Cancun. Using a hollow, ultrasound guided needle, the eggs are aspirated from the fluid-filled (follicular) sacs of the ovaries.

Fertilization —

Once retrieved the eggs are sent to a team of embryologists in an IVF laboratory setting where they are identified and prepared for fertilization. The eggs are combined with the partner’s sperm or donor sperm for fertilization. After fertilization and over the next three to five days cell division takes place; the fertilized eggs are now called embryos.

Embryo Transfer —

Two to five days after egg retrieval, the embryos (up to 3) are loaded into a thin catheter and relocated to the cervix of the recipient. If cryopreservation (freezing) is to take place, it will occur at this point.

Aftercare and Pregnancy Test —

An hour wait is achieved in the recovery room before patients can resume activities.  Patients traveling abroad may return home the same day as the transfer. Typically, 12 days after the embryo transfer, a pregnancy test can be implemented.
